AALL & Create Guest Designer Project - Love You To Death

Hi folks, I'm back with Guest Designer Project #3 for AALL & Create and the minute I saw Stencil #46 Skulls Splash designed by Autour deMwa, I knew it would be perfect to make a card for a friend who has a birthday on Halloween, the spookiest day of the year, adding a double layered flower from the Print By Numbers #119 stamp set by Tracy Evans for a little bit of feminity. You can check out all the AALL & Create products I used and a list of stockists HERE

I trimmed Distress Mixed Media Heavystock to measure 7" x 5" and coloured wth Ripe Persimmon and Dusty Concord Distress Oxide inks, pulling the card through the inks, drying and then tapping back in to pick up the remaining droplets.
I coloured Wendy Vecchi Translucent Embossing Paste with Black Soot Distress Re-inker and applied through the Skulls Splash Stencil.
I sprinkled Stampendous Aged Black Embossing Enamel on to the wet paste and once the paste was dry, I heat set the embossing enamel,
a closeup of the very black, very shiny, flecked with gold, gnarly old skull and sentiment
I applied Dusty Concord Distress Oxide with a mini round blending tool through the stencil to complete the sentiment,sprinkled with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder and heat to set
I stamped the flower image from Print By Numbers #119 by Tracy Evans with Versafine Black Onyx ink on to panel of Distress Mixed Media Heavystock coloured in the same way as before
fussy cut and layered two of the flowers. I cut out the centre circle from the third, used a Versamark embossing pen, heat embossed with the Stampendous Aged Black Embossing Enamel and added details with a Signo Uniball White Pen. I added a circle of Black Eclectic Elements thread and placed the flower on top.
I applied Ranger Opague White Texture Paste through Stencil #19 on the skull and centre of the flower. Finally I stamped the image from the For The Record #125 stamp set by Aida Domisiewicz with Versamark Onyx Black randomly on the background and matted the panel on to a 7.1/2" x 5.1/2" Black Card blank.
Have fun whatever you are creating and I'll see you all soon
